    I want to see your cars!

    C'mon guys, let's see all the cars you've ever owned!

    My first post will be my Subarus. In order:

    - Patti, my 1991 Legacy L 5MT AWD. It is the car that made me into a Subaru guy. Patti got me through high school and college, 9 years and 90k miles, without ever leaving me stranded anywhere, for any reason. Pic taken by killboy.com at the Tail of the Dragon.
    - Ginger, my 1988 XT GL 5MT 4WD. I miss this car more than any car I've ever owned and sold. Quite possibly the most 80s car ever made. I did my first autocross at the 2003 Subaru Challenge in Gainesville, FL with Ginger.
    - Gretchen, my 1979 GL Wagon 4MT 4WD. I bought and sold this car not running. I never drove it or registered it, and I deeply regret never making any progress with it.
    - Okichi, the one Subaru I still own, a 100% authentic 2000 Subaru Legacy B4 RSK twin-turbo 5MT RHD, AWD of course. No, it's not 25 years old. I'm well aware. I've owned it for 8 years as of a week ago. This car needs a bit of work (knock sensor, possible vacuum leak, whining P/S pump, etc.), but I fully intend to keep this car as close to forever as possible.

ID:	1319 My current daily driver is one of the smaller cars I've owned but it's insanely practical. I've fit a ton of stuff in it on more than one occasion.

    Oh man this is my kind of thread! Here goes my list.

    1. 1975 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT 5.9L V8 inherited from my grand father who bought brand new. I got in in 1992 with 29k original miles. I owned this truck twice. Sold it once to my best man and later bought it back a couple of years later. I ended up selling it in 2003 with 90k miles to help fund my engine build for my turbo swap.

    2. 1987 Buick Grand National w/T-tops. My first car purchase in 1995 (11/17/95 to be exact) with 117k miles from the original owner for $10,500. A Bargain today!

    3. 1990 Acura Integra LS 5spd. Traded my GN w/160k mi for this car after racking up $10k in credit card debt. Boy I missed that torque though. Bought for $7,999 with 101k mi in 1998.

    4. 1986 Buick Regal T-type hardtop. Dark chestnut with tan bucket seats. Purchased for $6,000 with only 80k miles from the 3rd owner in 1999. An absolute steal! This car ended up being a super early 86 model made in July or August of 85. There were many unique engine parts on this car. It had a billet crank pulley, different power steering pump with different line routing, the BRF stamp on the transmission was scribed by hand rather than stamped, T-type was hand written with a pen or chalk on the back of the instrument cluster. The first thing that struck me as odd is the emissions label was double stacked under the hood as well as the option sticker on the trunk lid. It would appear this car started off life as a Regal and was pulled off the assembly line and made into a T-type. Unfortunately this car was stolen in 2000 with 108k miles on it. The car was located in Oakland 2 months later with 112k miles (4,300 miles since it was with me), VIN switched to an 83 Regal with 83 Regal tail lights and steering column. Someone removed all T-type emblems and rubbed off of the black paint on the door and trunk lock cylinders to make it look like a regular Regal. All of my modifications were still on the car but it was totalled in the rear. My insurance gave me just under $13,000 for the car and I bought it back for $2,100.

    5. 1985 Honda CRX HF 5spd with 150k miles in 1999. Purchased from a co-worker for $500. The car ended up having a blown head gasket. Got 52mpg on a 110 mile loop with the blown gasket. Repaired car and sold for $1,200. I wish I had not sold that car.

    6. 1994 Acura Integra RS 5spd. Traded my 90 Integra w/165k miles for this car in 2000. Purchased for $4,999 with 100k miles. Most reliable car I have ever own and also the car that almost killed me the most.

    7. 1985 Buick Regal Limited V8 Bought at a tow yard for $450 in 2000 without reverse. Car had over 100k miles but don't recall the exact milage. I bought this car to swap over my T-type drivetrain over but this car was rotting and wasn't really nice enough. I leant this car to a co-worker for a couple of months to commute from Modesto to Danville as his car died. He had zero problems except for the reverse. A lady hit it parked right in the quarter panel. I ended up getting $700 for damages after calling the police as she took off. She just got service at Walmart and they witnessed her hitting my car and had all of her info. Car ended up going to Pick N Pull sadly.

    8. 1985 Chevrolet El Camino Conquesta V6. While searching for boomboxes at the massive Salvation Army Rehab Center in Sonoma County I went to look at the cars for sale and found this car. It is a G-Body and I needed one for my swap. The car ran and drove and actually felt super tight with the newer progressive rear springs and shocks. The car was $975 and there was this guy who said he was going to buy it. He started talking it down talking about everything that was wrong with it. He said his wife was going to get the cash. I thought about it for a sec and called BS. This Salvation Army was super strict with the cut off time when you can buy a car. My buddy bought a couple of cars from them and has issues with their policy. I belive their cut off was 4:30 and they closed at 5pm. This guy was telling me about his wife getting the money at like 4:50pm. My buddy and I thought about it and figured he was bluffing to keep me away. Called my wife and said that I was spending the night as I lived 75 miles away. First thing in the morning we went there and made the purchase. Funny thing is when I was picking up the car I saw the guy bluffing show up lol I fixed a vacuum leak by trimming a hose with a slit and it barely passed smog. The entire drivetrain from my 86 Regal T-type went into this El Camino. I will do a build thread at some point on this car.

    9. 2002 Nissan Maxima SE in Glacier white (pearl). Traded my 94 Integra with 160k miles in for this car in 2003. Picked this up as an ex-rental car for $17,900 with only 22k miles on it. I loved this car!

    10. 2005 Mitsubishi Galant DE First new car purchase for $22,000 if I recall correctly. Traded in my Maxima SE with 76k miles in 2005 for my 1st wife literally on our way home from our honeymoon. The Maxima was a great car and this car was meh.

    11. 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in Tarmac Black. Purchased 1 week after purchasing the Galant with 17k miles for $25,900 in June 2005. This dealer let me take a 06 Evo IX MR in Graphite Gray for a 24hr test drive. The car ripped but I was not a fan of the mods. I am more into the stock or stealth mod look.

    12. 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR SE in Tarmac Black. Purchased in 2008 with 17k miles just like the 03 but this one had about $5,000 in Works mods that were not very visible to the untrained eye. This car was the best and well kept car I had ever owned. This car was set up exactly like I would have set it up. I miss this car the most. I sold my 03 Evo back to the same dealer I bought it from with 80k miles on it for $12,000. I had to write a check for about $1,000 to free up the title. After giving the dealer and dropping off a check and my car I drove straight over to Livermore Honda and bought the 06 Evo IX MR SE for $28,900.

    13. 2008 Mitsubishi Galant Ralliart in Rave Red with 5k miles in 2009. As hard as it was to let my beloved Evo IX go this was actually a really nice car. Unfortunately we discovered my 1st wife had a brain tumor and we were preparing for the worst by trading in two cars for one just in case. We traded in the Galant DE with 50k miles and my Evo IX MR SE with 34k miles to San Rafael Mitsubishi. Shout out to them as they actually sent a couple of guys to our home in Concord to pick up our trades. We did the deal in our own living room Best car buying experience ever! We were able to buy this car at full retail price of $30,000 so we could roll the negative equity from both cars into this loan so we could keep our savings for what was to come. Not the ideal situation but it really worked our as we essentially cut our payments in half. They gave me $22,000 if I recall correctly. Sadly my 1st wife passed when my son was only 3 months old. Thank God we did this trade! Had this car until 2014 and it had 92k miles on it. No issues during my ownership.

    14. 1999 Infiniti I30 with 160k miles. I had a job change and needed something more affordable. Picked this up on craigslist for $3,100 in 2014. I still own this car and it has been super reliable! I have only done basic maintenance, a knock sensor, a Pick N Pull $30 alternator and that's it! Other than handling like a wet noodle it's been a great car. It currently has 207k miles.

    15. 2004 Ford Focus SVT 6spd. I picked this car up on craigslist with 127k miles on it for $3,000 in September 2017. This car has been an absolute joy to drive! I had not owned a manual transmission car since 2009. I have only had a driver's side window regulator fail and I have just done regular maintenance. I still own it and it currently has 174k miles on it.

    Sorry for the novel but I will add some pics a little later :)






    Alright here are some pics. I am a little rusty with this forum stuff but I am for sure loving it!

This had been my dream car for years. As of late you'd be hard pressed to find a running GN for what I paid for this car. I'd own another one but these prices are getting crazy.

    I love that van, it's so cool. It's neat that it's not only a JDM Mazda with a Ford badge, but that it's also the XLT trim. I'd like to see a Spectron Lariat Eddie Bauer.

    For no other reason other than I'm a goddamned lunatic, I now own a 1993 Ford Spectron XL-T!

    "I'm sorry, a what?" I can hear you all saying...

    ... a 1993 Ford Spectron XL-T.

    In many Eastern countries, the Mazda Bongo van proved to be incredibly popular, quickly gaining a reputation for being dependable and durable. Many other automakers wanted to share in Mazda's success, including Nissan, Mitsubishi, Kia, and Ford, and, long story short, one badged as a Ford Spectron from Japan has made its way into my driveway!







    Because it's actually built by Mazda, it has a RF 2.0L turbodiesel engine making a whole 71hp and sending it to the rear wheels (some versions were 4WD) through a 5-speed manual transmission.

    Oddly, the Mazda RF diesel engine did make an appearance in a few USDM cars, although they have been virtually wiped out of existence:

    The 1984-1985 Mazda 626 diesel
    The 1984-1986 Ford Tempo and Escort as well as the Mercury Topaz and Lynx

    Parts will be a challenge, but I have over 15 years of parts experience as well as global contacts for Japanese parts... and besides, it has just over 30k kilometers on it, which equates to about 18k miles!

    So I hope to have many more years of silly adventures with it!
